We had a great stay at the Modern B&B, we rented one of their flats for a few days
in Feb 2010, upon arrival we were upgraded to a larger one that gave us one more bedroom for free!
Lisa was lovely and
gave us loads of tips of restaurants, bars, cafe's and directions to everywhere!
The breakfast served was great; I'm
a vegan myself and never expect to be acommodated for, but I was with smoothies, toast, coffee, home made vegan bakes and
I truly recommend Modern B&B to everyone visiting Houston - it's also located in a lovely area of the city
with nice places to go out within walking distance which isn't very common in US!

I had a fine time at Modern B&B. Good breakfast, comfortable room, fat cat. --Edward Albee, New York City

This is the 4th or 5th time we have stayed at M B&B. Firstly, I want to commend
Lisa (the owner) on her amazing hospitality and her efforts to make your travel as hassle-free as possible. Ease of reservations
and her flexibility make every visit great. Modern B&B is by far one of my most favorite places to stay in ALL my travels
around the globe.
My boyfriend and I have always stayed in the Top Shelf Room. The view of the downtown skyline
is spectacular and totally worth the price! (The prices for all the rooms are very reasonable as well.) The roomy Top Shelf
bedroom and amazing bathroom plus walk-in closet makes you wish you could stay there forever. Also, the entire townhouse is
well furnished and decorated, with every comfort you need. The common areas have interesting artwork, books and movies for
your use, as well as a 'business center'.
This is the first B&B I've ever been to where you don't feel like
you're 'intruding' in the kitchen (there's a guest kitchen too) or common areas. Unlike other B&B's we've stayed at where
we have experienced the B&B managers treating us with an odd are distant relatives of theirs on a visit and want to chat
you up the entire time you are in the common areas, Lisa and her staff do not make you feel like you are obligated to 'hang
out' with them but they are happy to do so if you want interesting conversation or recommendations, etc...! (Oh, and if they
All in all, Modern B&B is perfect in all aspects: Clean, modern, comfortable, welcoming, charming,
friendly, and open. Hotels such as Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton can't hold a candle to the experiences we've had at Modern
I travel constantly on my job and long ago gave up staying in chain hotels out of sheer
boredom; byou never know what you're going to get in a B&B. Modern B&B was, hands down, the best B&B I've ever
stayed at in terms of comfort, amenities and the sheer joy of Lisa's (and friends!) company. I never feel as if I'm staying
at a commercial establishment -- I feel right at home. There are always interesting people around and Lisa plays "salon
hostess" to great effect. Food: great. Accommodations: Better than great. Company: superb. Flexibility/being accommodating:
terrific. The only downside to my writing this review is that I'm afraid so many people will books rooms there might not be
any availability the next time I need it!
Real Estate Reviews
See what Lisa's clients have to say about her
real estate acumen.
Whilst one would be
averse to stand up in a court of law and testify for or against the Lovely Lisa Collins, I can, without doubt, aver to her
house vending/finding skills. Lest there be any vagueness, on the part of the reader of this testimonial, I shall relate my
personal experience with the one and only Lisa Collins.
I'm a 50 year old, single, lush of an Irish woman
living in Houston, TX for some 20 odd years. I wanted a house. I wanted a house I could afford. I wanted a house that didn't
need fixing and was ready to walk into. I wanted a house to live in 'til I croak. I wanted a house in a specific locale (the
Heights or Montrose). I wanted a house with a yard (allowing my 2 Yorkshire Terrier puppies, Seamus and Paddy, to crap and pee at will and torture squirrels). I wanted a garage (OK, I wanted a garage so I could
turn it into a pub). I wanted to feel and be safe in my new house. I wanted to walk, jog, cycle to the stores for my booze,
chips and dip, lottery tickets and dog chow. I wanted to drive, no more than 15 minutes, to my work place each day without
getting on a freeway. I wanted great neighbors. I wanted peace and quiet. I wanted someone to find MY house ASAP. There was
and is no end to my wants.
Anywho, drum roll, enter
the LOVELY LISA COLLINS!
A friend of mine
recommended Lisa to me. Lisa was the only realtor I entertained and was entertained by. Lisa got me all of the above I wants.
She is absolutely tireless in meeting the needs/wants of her clients! That is testimonial in itself. However, not only did
I get the home I wished for, and more, but Lisa and I became good friends to me and my "posse" of Irish, English,
Scottish, American chums. What a unique lady! The whole house buying process was painless and a lot of fun for me and my pals.
I could go on and on about the qualities, talents and uniqueness of Lisa, but need to get my butt back to work lest I get fired.
